All-Inclusive Celebration with Chefs Duane Nutter, E.J. Hodgkinson, Nick Leahy, Savannah Haseler, Matthew Roher, Roberto Leoci, Holly Chute, and Mixologist Julian Goglia
Long known as an agriculture producing powerhouse, Georgia is now the rising star on the nation's culinary scene as young chefs -- many of them native trained -- have embraced and enhanced the rich traditions of Southern Cuisine. Six of the state's hottest young chefs will delight food enthusiasts at the SolarOne Pier for A Taste of Georgia from 4pm - 10pm on July 4th. Ticket and event info are available at: http://bit.ly/28Ltcph
Under the watchful eye of Georgia's Grand Dame, Executive Chef Holly Chute of the Georgia Department of Agriculture's Georgia Grown program, each of these young superstars will be reinterpreting Southern summer classics in fresh and exciting ways.
The chefs include Duane Nutter of One Flew South, E.J. Hodgkinson of King and Duke, Nick Leahy of Saltyard, Savannah Haseler of Twain's, Matthew Roher of The Landings Club, and Roberto Leoci of 700 Drayton. Renowned Georgia mixologist Julian Goglia will round out the Southern dream team.
"Georgia is a treasure trove of fresh flavors in July," Chute explains "Our chefs don't have to look far for inspiration... most of them have relationships with local farmers, so they're serving produce and proteins that are as fresh as it gets."
700 guests will be treated to summer favorites such as fried chicken, barbecue, blueberry and watermelon salad, Summer slaw, roasted sweet potatoes and... of course... peach cobbler. "We're bringing the best of the best" Chute emphasized, adding that her local poultry, Springer Mountain Farms, was just named best-tasting chicken by Cooking Light Magazine. "Plus we'll be cooking on the (Georgia-based) Big Green Egg... so the whole waterfront should be treated to a mouth-watering, smoky aroma."
The Taste of Georgia is being produced by Georgia's Gumbo Marketing and hosted -- as part of the cookout NYC series -- by Jimmy Carbone's Food Karma Projects. This years' sponsors include Big Green Egg, Springer Mountain Farms, Georgia Department of Economic Development and Georgia Grown.
